Although the above would probably crash a computer, you can do it much simpler in batch just using labels. All the above does is open so many Command Prompt windows that it fills up the RAM and results in the computer being "overwhelmed" This is called a "fork bomb"

To do it with labels you can do the following:
(Mod's, i'm sorry if this is not allowed but i did check the user and he was not banned or warned so i'm assuming that it is OK to post the following)

Sigh...

killtask just ends the process of the program running. Killing explorer.exe will not crash your computer it will just end the process which results in your task bars disappearing along with all your icons and explorer windows. You can start the process up buy running explorer.exe

Neither scripts will crash your computer. Your computer will just reallocate memory to the processes cmd.exe and everything else will slow down. When your computer starts running out of memory Windows will stop the process that is creating the explorer windows.

Debug explorer!

I think that's what it is. I can't remember; it's been a while since I've crashed a computer with a bat file. Last thing I did to crash one was ping flood it. =]

I'm fairly sure you cannot do this while booting off the C drive, since it is the active partition.

Similar to how you cannot modify a file while it is in use.

/y just suppresses prompting to confirm you want to delete the subdirectory.
